Why is Consultation important ? 

Under MINIS project, projects namely the Flow Regulation of Orkhon River and  Construction of Reservoir Complex, Shuren Hydropower Plant Project,  Integrated steel complex with infrastructure in the central region of Darkhan and Selenge, and Coal to synthetic natural gas are being designed.  Therefore,  Cumulative Impact Assessment in Tavan Tolgoi and Baganuur Coal mining  region and IWRM development for 3 RBAs are being undertaken.

Stakeholder consultations are a necessary  to obtain the views of people  who may be affected  by these development projects or  may otherwise  have interest  in their outcomes , and to inform them  about the changes  that could affect them.  Since these stakeholders usually do not have  a direct role on decisions  about  projects that may affect them , consultations are an important  mechanism to ensure that  their concerns are taken into account  while these decisions made. Well-conducted consultations provide project affected  people  with  a clear understanding of how  the project , and  the changes it will bring about, will have an impact  on them and, as well as meaningful ways  to influence decision making during project design and implementation. 

How does MINIS makes the consultation –related documents publicly available?  

MINIS uses all the suitable approaches of disclosing consultation materials. 

These are included:  

-  MINIS discloses its consultation related  materials  ( draft report,  technical and non-technical summaries, presentation, invitation/agenda ) on Consultation Hub of MINIS ‘s website sufficiently before the intended date of the consultation date. 

-  Also, sufficiently far enough advance, MINIS visits to consultation event areas and well explains the contents of  materials and purpose  of consultations. In  other words,MINIS does not only hand the materials,but accurate, adequate and timely  information the consultation subject is  provided in person.  

-  Through the email addresses of invitees.  So that the interested public has enough time to review relevant materials and to decide whether to become involved and make plans for the involvement.
